QuickAction Implementation on Android

A while ago I watched the google IO video on UI Design patterns.

I was quite impressed by what I saw. One in particular caught my attention was the “Quick Action”.
Basically when a user clicks on an “Item” a quick Action bar appears where a user can select action he/she wants to perform. This could be a very handy tool especially for the application which have items that are context sensitive yet don’t need to click on “Menu” button the device.
As this is not provided by standard Android SDK, we have to implement our own. However, I found this great article on how this could be Impleted.
